Psychoides verhuella / filicivora larvae

A few days ago I was trying to identify (in the field) some Psychoides larvae feeding on Hart's-tongue Fern. Looking at the tiny larvae, with a 4X hand lens, I was struggling to see which of the two species I had, but, in a good light and with enough magnification they really are quite different.
